Try booting with "linux noacpi noapm" or similar -- disable
power-management entirely on the kernel command line. Also, "linux
single" may help, by booting without starting the power management code.
I had a pretty awful upgrade, too. (In
particular, it seemed to screw up the X config badly enough that the X
server would die without even logging anything. Also, I still can't boot
with the new kernel, since the ndiswrapper modules aren't available as
dpkgs for that kernel it seems.)
Also, I've found that running "apt-get install kubuntu-desktop
ubuntu-desktop ubuntu-base" after a dist-upgrade tends to help install the
new apps that are sometimes required.
